Introduction To Aylmer Newspapers

(updated 28 March 2014)

The first paper published in Aylmer may have been the Aylmer Warder which according to the St. Thomas Weekly Dispatch of Spring 1858 was copying articles from the Dispatch. Then came the Aylmer Herald whose first issue was on the 5th March 1857. After the Herald went out of publication, it was succeeded by the revitalized Aylmer Warder who published again on 1st December 1867. It ran for about one year and then went out of business. On 18th September 1869 Mr. Aldrich published the Aylmer Enterprise. In 1873 Mr. Pankhurst took over and renamed it the Aylmer Paper. This paper was published until September 1879. The Aylmer Paper began publication again on 10th October 1879. The name was changed to the Aylmer Express on 1st January 1880. On 27th November the semi-weekly Sun began publication. It failed in 1887. Under a new owner it was renamed the Aylmer Sun. Both the Aylmer Express and the Aylmer Sun ran papers in Aylmer until 1915. Under new owners the Sun became the East Elgin Reformer and later the East Elgin Tribune. On 19th March 1921 the Aylmer Express masthead included the East Elgin Tribune (Aldrich’s Pocket Directory of the Town of Aylmer, April 1881; article from Aylmer Express, 7th May 1997).

Unfortunately, few copies of the Aylmer Express exists prior to December 1890. Beginning with the issues published in December, 1890, the Aylmer Express is available to researchers on microfilm at the Elgin County Archives, and at the Aylmer Public Library. This extraction and indexing project has been prepared primarily with the genealogist in mind, but some items relating to local history have been noted.
